BBQ Chicken with Green Sauce

2:00 pm on 13 January 2020


1 whole chicken cut in half or 4 legs


30ml soy sauce
1 clove garlic
1 tsp sesame oil
Pinch chilli flakes
1 tsp sugar
White pepper

Green sauce:

1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup coriander
1/8 cup chopped chives
1/8 cup sherry vinegar
1/8 cup neutral oil
2 peeled shallots
1 red chilli



Mix the glaze ingredients and rub into the chicken and let sit for 1 hour wrapped on the bench.

Get the bbq going, preferably charcoal but gas will be fine - just less smokey flavour.

Put all the green sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until sauce consistency.

When the bbq is medium/hot cook the chicken skin side down until it has nice colour, then flip and cook bone side down until done with the lid closed.

Chicken is done when it probes at 65 degrees or above.

Rest the chicken for 10 mins

Serve with the green sauce.
